“Nikki James is a private investigator and seems to be acting as a body guard. Nikki has unique psychic/telepathic abilities that help her locate people as well as physically hold things around her. Trying to protect the teenage Monica Trevgard she follows her into a deadly situation. Nikki knows it is deadly because her psychic abilities keep screaming at her. In her attempts to save Monica, she becomes the target of a deranged vampire.
Michael Kelly is a 300 year old vampire. Tracking down and killing his brother's murderer is his obsession. When he saves Nikki from that same vampire his world is turned upside down, the vampire that killed his brother. He has found a woman who might be able to stand by him for eternity. But the crazy vampire that tore his world apart is at it again, targeting the one woman he dared to care for.
The vampires in this story have the potential for great evil and only through their personal battle to curb their behavior do they choose to fight for good. Even though they choose to be “good” it is a constant battle with their darker side. This leaves the intriguing possiblity for Michael to loose control at any time.
This story is filled with action, drama and plot tension. Most of the story is set up, although there is some romance it is more plot building for the story's base.
I found Dancing With The Devil a great start to a new story line giving it huge potential for the Nikki & Michael series. An interesting paranormal story line, a quick and easy read, and leaving me wanting more, this is definitely a book and series worth checking out.
